If you like the radio-themed comics from vintage electronics magazines, then you'll appreciate the jackpot of them (5) in the July 1945 issue of Radio Craft magazine. Being the era in which it was published, many of the comics at the time had military-electronics themes as well. A lot of them are credited to subscribers providing ideas. One of my favorite features is "Radio Terms Illustrated," where readers write in with suggestions for how common lingo in the radio realm can have an alternate interpretation. Such is the case with "Wave Trap" in the first comic. I think Frank Beaven was the illustrator for all of them. Look in the big list of other technical-themed comics at the bottom of the page for others which include "Radio Terms Illustrated."
